'Neoism', launched around 1979 by Zack and Ackermann, is an open movement and gave the possibility to each who wanted to take part in it, to develop the movement according to their own needs.
One of the three central strategies of 'Neoism' beside "plagiarism" and the "art strike" was the use of multiple names, which is an imported part of their philosophy.
The use of multiple names in 'Neoism' was a reaction against false individualism in capitalist society, by using all the same identity, control and describing is impossible.

 ¤ Sztuka Fabryka ¤
'Neoism' was an open movement and each artist was free to call him/herself a 'neoist' and could contribute, re-interprete and add upon a given structure, to develop the movement according to their own needs.
Mail-artists took from 'Neoism' what was of interest for them without adapting their activities to the theory of 'Neoism' or add any substantial result to 'Neoism'.
'Neoism' has perfected this technique, surpassing its forebears Dada, Situationist, and Fluxus to the extent that even now, some thirty years after the movement started, art historians have done their best to ignore it, or to treat it as only a footnote to the more historical clear Mail-Art movement.

NEOISM AS NEGATION and THE NEGATION OF NEOISM
In keeping with this allegorical interpretation of Neoism, the initiation of individuals into the movement must necessarily be described as follows: the candidate is blindfolded and led into a darkened room.

 Clifford Brown on Neoism as seen by Clifford Brown. A critical view of a late-20th century avant-garde art movement.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
By reconstructing Neoism as a semi-pop cultural 'movement in the tradition of the 20th century artistic avant-garde,' Brown chose the most stupid history available, tailor-made for conformist non-conformists, ready to be stacked in bookshelves next to "Re/search," "T.A.Z.," and "Apocalypse Culture," predestined to become the only successful contextualization of Neoism it then factually became.
Of course, Neoism is merely ridiculous when considered a "movement in the tradition of the modern art avant-garde." Such an explication would both hit the nail on its most blatant shortcomings, and, being the oxymoron it is, mark the structural irony of the whole enterprise.
Neoism was never "avant-garde," but--literally speaking--speculation: a movement to create the illusion that there is a movement called Neoism.

 stewart home interview on neoism
Neoism was a continuation through an almost self-conscious degeneration of the more radical currents that flowed out of fluxus in particular, but filtered through mail art and punk.
Neoism doesn't fit into your picture of the eighties art world, it belongs to absolute elsewhere, the utopia of learning about life by fucking death in the gall bladder.
It is best to leave 'active' Neoism to these buffoons, since they excel at dragging Neoism through the mud, and while they have a dirty and unfulfilling job, someone has to do it in order to repel the semi-sophisticated breed of art historian, and thereby prevent the 'movement' being misrepresented as some sort of monolith.

 marchart | does neoism exist?
In an interview with the V and A curator Simon Ford in 1994, Home already announced a novel about the historicization of Neoism: he considered that it would be appropriate for the Neoist historicization process to be published first as fiction, before too many art historians seize on Neoism by themselves.
The fact, however, that history is not written once and for all time according to positivist criteria of alleged evidence is proven by the case of Fluxus and its sudden overwhelming presence since the retrospective at the 1990 Biennale, or the case of Situationism and the flood of publications, translations and new editions.
From the beginning, Neoism was not exactly the logical candidate for a box seat in the art history of the 80s.

As I'm fond of sloganizing: "Neoism Now and Then!" In other words, I'm a Neoist (whatever the fuck that is) when I feel like it - but I prefer to remain fluid enough to avoid being penned in by 'Neoism' if and when such a thing might happen.
